SYDNEY (Reuters) - Marijuana-scented cell phone covers have caused such a buzz in Australia that the company selling them had to pull them out of an technology fair in Sydney. Local authorities and New South Wales state Premier, Bob Carr, slammed the green, marijuana-motif covers as promoting drug use to young people. 

Made in China and arrayed next to chocolate, strawberry, blueberry, cherry and rose-scented snap-on covers, the marijuana version sold well, though only to the over 18s...

Would you use a marijuana-scented cell phone?

That gets the honor of being officially The Most Stupid Thing I've ever heard.
18 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Tuesday 5/27/03 - 8:07:04 AM EST (GMT-5)
I was gonna make a call, but then I got high...
18 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Tuesday 5/27/03 - 8:07:50 AM EST (GMT-5)
That's ridiculous.
18 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Tuesday 5/27/03 - 8:09:20 AM EST (GMT-5)
Scented cell phone covers in general are ridiculous.
18 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Tuesday 5/27/03 - 8:13:18 AM EST (GMT-5)
While probably not legally prosecutable, it smacks of ethical obstruction of justice if you think about how misleading it could be. Why not just put a neon sign on top of your house saying, "Who's got the chronic?"
18 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Tuesday 5/27/03 - 8:20:38 AM EST (GMT-5)
Why pay for it when I can do it myself.
18 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Tuesday 5/27/03 - 8:26:37 AM EST (GMT-5)
wow.
18 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Tuesday 5/27/03 - 8:28:40 AM EST (GMT-5)
I can't stand the smell of it anyway... It gives me a headache.
18 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Tuesday 5/27/03 - 8:42:23 AM EST (GMT-5)
LOL @ UL I could think of a few people who would definitely get one of those.
18 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Tuesday 5/27/03 - 9:52:01 AM EST (GMT-5)
Wow that is a call to posers everwhere. If you really smoke pot then your phone will probably smell like it anyway, so why would you pay money forit.
18 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Tuesday 5/27/03 - 9:54:36 AM EST (GMT-5)
I don't smoke, but I think it'd be awesome to have a giant neon sign that says "Who's got the Chronic?"
18 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Tuesday 5/27/03 - 9:54:49 AM EST (GMT-5)
I thought people smoked pot for the way it made them feel, not for the aroma it produced. Silly me.

I love marijuana and I think that is a stupid idea. What if you got pulled over by a cop with a dog? Then you would get your car searched for sure. And if you have a marijuana scented phone, then you probably have some marijuana on you. Just stupid.
18 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Thursday 5/29/03 - 8:40:20 AM EST (GMT-5)
LMAO at "have caused such a buzz in Australia" Hee hee, buzz. Gotta go snack on some cheesy poofs now.
18 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Thursday 5/29/03 - 8:43:22 AM EST (GMT-5)
Oh my...
18 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Thursday 5/29/03 - 8:45:53 AM EST (GMT-5)
It was a joke, of course. No marijuana induced munchies here.
18 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Friday 5/30/03 - 9:11:28 PM EST (GMT-5)
I've finally heard it...the stupidest idea ever! Good weed is about the best aroma on earth, but a phone??? What's next, gin scented toilet paper?
18 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Saturday 5/31/03 - 7:54:33 PM EST (GMT-5)
Haha, that's absurd.
18 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 6/1/03 - 4:46:15 AM EST (GMT-5)
Heh. My friend has a lemon-scented one. It’s not much different to marijuana scented incense really though.
18 yrs ago, 11 mos ago - Sunday 6/1/03 - 4:52:05 AM EST (GMT-5)
ROFLAMO, ha ha ha ha, i can just picture a bunch of wasters sitting round this mobile trying to get high on it
17 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Tuesday 10/19/04 - 10:39:06 AM EST (GMT-5)
I love weed!!! I wear shirts advertising that I am a stoner. Why not have a scented phone to "remind" me that it is time to smoke? They should also add a ring tone that says "Wanna get high?"
17 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Tuesday 10/19/04 - 11:07:23 AM EST (GMT-5)
" the marijuana version sold well, though only to the over 18s... "

what, because marijuana is so much more LEGAL to those over 18?

yeah, i'd probably buy one.

17 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Tuesday 10/19/04 - 11:30:59 AM EST (GMT-5)
Id probably buy one, But If i was a stoner id spend the money on better things..... Like weed.
17 yrs ago, 7 mos ago - Tuesday 10/19/04 - 1:07:19 PM EST (GMT-5)
I would buy it if I wanted to smell like a liberal.
17 yrs ago, 6 mos ago - Wednesday 11/3/04 - 2:15:19 PM EST (GMT-5)
i HATE the smell of marijuana. it gives me a stomach ache and a headache. i will never do drugs.
